Electrical Safety First have just launched a nationwide consumer campaign highlighting the need for people to use registered electricians and avoid cost-cutting options.
The charity estimates around £2.4bn has been spent correcting substandard and dangerous electrical work across the UK.
Their research shows that an alarming number of people, almost 1 in 3, would consider hiring an unregistered electrician for work such as rewiring a house just to save money.
The advice from the experts is to ensure your electrician is fully registered and don’t risk the safety of your family for the sake of a saved fiver.
